[Newsmaker] White House official: N. Korea's denuclearization will be 'process'

  • The meeting would be the first time Mr Kim has hosted a fellow head of state

"I think at the end of that process, that's the goal, unilateral denuclearization, disarming them and so forth", Kudlow said, noting that he is not directly involved in the talks. While in Singapore, he held talks with such US officials as White House deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin.

It was unclear whether Giuliani was referring to public statements made by North Korea's foreign ministry or private negotiations between USA and North Korean officials.

Rodman's relationship with Kim dates back to 2013, when Rodman first traveled to North Korea for the filming of the Vice documentary film "Basketball Diplomacy".

Reports say that the former National Basketball Association star will be in the country prior to the president's meeting with the North Korean leader, Fox Business Network host Charles Payne provides insight on 'Your World'.

He also shared his vision of steps to settle the situation on the Korean Peninsula after the US-North Korea summit scheduled for June 12.

The island that houses the luxury resort in Singapore where President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will hold their historic summit next week has a dark past.


North Korea has been fairly isolated from conducting business with the rest of the world with United Nations sanctions placed on the country due to its nuclear weapons program.

Two people familiar with the relationship between Pompeo and Bolton said Pompeo is skeptical of Bolton and does not trust his views on dealing with North Korea.

White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders made the announcement during a regular press briefing, adding that significant progress had been made in discussions between US representative and their North Korean counterparts.

The confirmation came after the Singapore government earlier in the week made public the cordoning off of the island and surrounding waters as a "special event area", effective from June 10 to June 14.

Ms Sanders called the letter that top North Korean official Kim Yong-chol delivered from Kim Jong-un to Mr Trump on Friday "interesting" but wouldn't comment on its contents.

The White House has been tight-lipped about Trump's preparations for the summit.
